Hi saraveza408...

An SMA Jack looks like those pictured HERE. Not really much like a microphone jack.

They will help with signal strength in most cases...they will not necesarily increase the range of the signal much. If you're talking pulling signals through walls in a home, look into a repeater that uses household wiring. For internet cafe' use, they're more of an inconvenience than a help.

It really all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
